In Nizhny Tagil, a music teacher suffered from fraudsters. A 72-year-old woman lost 400 thousand rubles, the press group of the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported.
A false policeman called the victim from a Moscow number and said that the pensioner’s sister had provoked the accident. The girl was allegedly injured in the accident. In order to hush up the incident and avoid a criminal case, the Tagil woman was offered to transfer money as compensation for damage. And then the caller handed the phone to the woman who was crying.
“At some point, it seemed to the victim that the unknown was indeed her sister. The tear-stained woman told the victim that it was necessary to transfer the money, and again the man spoke on the phone. The applicant agreed and said that she could donate 400,000 rubles. Unknown amount arranged, ”the city police department said.
A man who introduced himself as Rustam arrived for the money 20 minutes later. Only after some time the victim told the police that a criminal case had been opened. After this incident, the security forces came to the music school No. 2, where the victim works, with a preventive conversation.
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, since the beginning of 2022, 25 similar cases of fraud have been registered in Nizhny Tagil. Scams with bank cards of citizens are still in the lead.
